Wednesday Wisdom... . Sharp Edge is a classic grade 1 scramble on Blencathra of the Northern Fells of the Lake District. A knife edge arete with steep exposed sections on both sides. The scramble tops out with a 3 points of contact ascent of Foule Crag if done the traditional way from Scales Tarn. 'The bad step' pictured here can be particularly tricky in wet conditions, as it slopes away into 'The usual gully' so named as it is usually where Mountain Rescue are called out to on this route. Best tackled for the first time in dry clear conditions with no wind, it is an exhilirating scramble, and one that anyone with a good head for heights and a thirst for adventure should want to do ⛰👌 Have you tackled the edge?

Enough of me ranting about engagement. I do take it too personally at times! Moving on, Here's an old shot of Wastwater from Yewbarrow taken on a lovely December day last year. The light was just perfect this day as it danced over the fells and fields 👌 . . . #GetOutside #ordnancesurvey #osmapping #adventureawaitsall #ukhikers #learnleadinspire #thegreatoutdoors #lakedistrict #lakedistrictnationalpark #lakescollective #igerslakedistrict #igerscumbria #raw_hikes #uk_hiking #thelakelanders #fromlakelandwithlove #loveslakeswalks #capturingbritain #thisismyadventure #visualofbritain #theplacetobe #ukpotd #visitbritain #ig_united_kingdom #photosofengland #wanderlust #canonphotography

The first time I went up Place Fell it was in shocking weather. The views were non existent. I could still see my feet which is the important thing right? I remember touching the trig column, turning around and walking back down feeling pretty uninspired (and wet ) by it all. I've been up a couple times since then in varying conditions, but Saturday's trip up to the summit was the best to date. The views back to Brothers Water below are simply stunning. It's a shame you lose these views from the summit, which is another 500m on from the ascent up on the plateau, but with the Helvellyn range over to the West you're still blessed with fantastic views. A great fell to bag ⛰👌

I'm sure it's been asked a million times, but would you live here? This cottage at the foot of Buachaille Etive Mòr is actually owned by the Scottish national trust and is ever so popular with 'grammers' from around the world! Still wouldn't mind locking myself away in there for a while 👌 #GetOutside #osmapping #ordnancesurvey #capturingbritain #visitscotland #hiddenscotland #ig_scotland #instascotland #thisisscotland #visualsofscotland icu_scotland #thisismyadventure #visualofbritain #theplacetobe #ukpotd #visitbritain #ig_united_kingdom #photosofengland #wanderlust #canonphotography

I've hardly done any wildcamping this year as I've been so busy with other things! Here's a (late ) throwback to a fiery chilled out evening somewhere in the Lakes . Anyone hazard a guess to the fell I'm camped on? ⛰⛺🌅 Have a great weekend everyone 👍

We've not posted for a couple of days, here's a night photo of magpie mine in the beloved peak district. - Cannot wait to post the photos we have taken in Norfolk. The weather and the sunsets have been amazing. We've also been videoing are little venture! We usually take our cats but we have left them at home this time, just because we thought it'd be too hot for them. . . . . #peakdistrictwalks #peakdistrictnationalpark #peakdistrict #peaks #adventure #adventurelife #campervan #astrophotography #ukpotd #igersderbyshire #derbyshiretimes #greatbritainshots #visitpeakdistrict #beautifulbritannia #visualofbritain #your_peakdistrict #natgeosky #britains_talent #visit_uk #genuinebritain #ig_peakdistrict #ukhubs #scenicbritain

Loch Torridon from the descent of Beinn Alligin 👌 . Who can spot the common theme running through my last three posts? 🏃‍♀️ Answers below 👇

Another moody shot from Storr. I dont think I'd want to visit this place in any other conditions. So atmospheric with mist swirling around the polished rocks. I've always preferred that to crystal clear sunshine. Anyone else favour these conditions in the mountains?

The pyramidical shape of Beinn Dearg (Red Mountain ) hangs in the clouds on our approach to Ra Nathanan (866m ), on the Beinn Alligin (Jewelled hill ) circuit. . The jewel in the crown is most definitely the Devils Horns on this walk. . At above 900m (see clouds pictured ) for most of the route we didn't get the views going across the ridge, but that's all the more reason to head back again soon! ⛰👌 .

Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the UK, and the main path up to its summit is unofficially called the "tourist route" But dont be fooled, it can be an unforgiven place in poor weather/visibility. Metres from the trig column is the huge gullies pictured here! In poor conditions it is quite easy to walk off the summit in the wrong direction! A safety tip is to walk on a bearing of 231° for 150 metres from the column, and then on a bearing of 282° until you reach the path. This will keep you away from the hazardous gullies ⛰👌 . Alternatively, if you'd like the comfort of being guided safely up and down, I know just the man 😉 . I should point out I dont wear these shorts when working 🤣

"You are not in the mountains, the mountains are in you" . John Muir . This quote will resonate with many of us. Something truly magical happens when we leave urbansville and enter the mountains. A combination of the freedom it brings, the physical and mental challenges of pitting ourselves against nature and the environment. It gives us a true sense of belonging and self worth. As humans we are still wired as an outdoor species. This is why we feel so happy to be outside. It really is the best therapy. And here's a cheesy smiley shot to prove it 😁⛰

I first saw a photo of the Quirang on an @ordnancesurvey poster at Keswick Mountain Festival in 2017 I knew then that I had to visit this place. I set the scene in my mind of a dramatic and moody landscape with me standing looking out in my usual pose....In reality, I was so excited, i went with this instead 🤣 . Thanks @rosemarie1989 for catching this rather special moment for me ⛰👍

Looking forward to a Scottish road trip with @rosemarie1989 next week. 7 days of van life 🚐👍 . I've been left to plan the itinerary for the week. So far the plan is to leave Lancashire, drive to Scotland, then return to Lancashire 😬 . The best plans are those not made yet right? 😉 . Maybe another crossing of the CMD arete? . If you were heading to the highlands for 7 days, where would you visit? Send us some suggestions please 👍

18 months ago i began the journey to become a Mountain Leader. Today that journey reached its destination as I gained my qualification. I've had help and support from many along the way (to everyone who came on one of my nav courses, thank you for the experience you gave me ) . But three people in particular have gone above and beyond for me. I'd like to thank Stu and Lee ( @stu ridley @ginger_devil09 ) for accompanying me on many walks and telling me I could when I thought I couldn't. And I'd especially like to thank @rosemarie1989 for the support and patience over the last 6 months when I've bored her to tears with facts about plants and clouds. When I needed someone to believe in me, you did that and then some! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me acheive this ❤

Just be yourself said the assessor. Not sure he meant right down to performing my usual Instagram pose 😉 (I'm actually navigating here! ) . I did promise myself that I'd not change the way I do things this weekend and that I'd be true to myself. It seems to have gone well 😊 . Half way there 🤞 #mountainleader #assessment

No mountains for me this weekend (except the ones made of study books on the sofa next to me 🤓⛰ ) . Taking a little time out to stop my brain aching and eyes watering 🤣 . Here's a shot from a few weeks ago on the Kentmere horseshoe route. Looking down to Kentmere Reservoir from the Nan Bield Pass. The prominent peaks of Yoke and Ill Bell behind 👌

I always go to this hill adjacent to Roseberry Topping! It's my favourite view of my most favourite mountain. The crowds flock to the nearby summit of its popular neighbour. But it is here where I go to collect my thoughts and to mull things over. When the crowds vacate, I then head to the top and claim it as my own 👌 . A special place in my heart it will always be ❤

It feels like an age ago that I was last in the Lakes having fun. My last few solo trips have been to prepare for my Mountain Leader assessment in a few short weeks! 😬 . I've either had my head buried in a map, been dangling from a rope or getting up close and personal to spaghnum moss 🤣 . Looking forward to getting it done and being able to relax, look up and enjoy the views again 👌

When friends ask my advice on crossing knife edge aretes, I always suggest sticking close together and supporting each other... . Clearly @ginger_devil09 and @stu ridley are not my friends! 😯 . Here they are somewhere in Glencoe as I cross the CMD arete onto Ben Nevis... . Wait up guys 👋

I'm on a train to London stressing out over a navigation presentation/workshop I'm giving tomorrow. Here is a shot of me in happier days when my only care was not falling off the CMD arete on the way up to the summit of Ben Nevis! . Now back to the PowerPoint that I think I've not saved whilst posting this 😬😭 #bennevis #cmdarete

'The Corpach wreck' . Real name MV Dayspring, she made her maiden voyage in 1975, and her last in 2001. Moored at Kinlochleven pier, she broke free during a violent storm on December 8th 2011 and ran aground here at Corpach. . #bennevis #highlands

I'm back in the Highlands this weekend with @ginger_devil09 and @stu ridley . I really hope we see some deer on this trip as they evaded us last time (how is that even possible! ) . This was us looking up the slopes of Ben Starav from Loch Etive, so desperate to see one we were making boulders move with our eyes 🤣 . We joke now that there was probably a full herd of them behind us just out of shot!! 🤔🤣 . You had to be there really....unlike the deer 🦒

Back from a fabulous 3 days in the lakes with @rosemarie1989 We've hiked, kayaked, ate, slept, hiked more and ate more. Plenty of laughs (usually at my expense along the way ) too. . At some point I seem to have worn my shorts and socks to an acceptable manner too! Or did I? 😉 . #taller_in_real_life #GetOutside #ordnancesurvey #osmapping #adventureawaitsall #ukhikers #learnleadinspire #thegreatoutdoors #lakedistrict #lakedistrictnationalpark #lakescollective #igerslakedistrict #igerscumbria #raw_hikes #uk_hiking #thelakelanders #fromlakelandwithlove #loveslakeswalks #capturingbritain #thisismyadventure #visualofbritain #theplacetobe #ukpotd #visitbritain #ig_united_kingdom #photosofengland #wanderlust #canonphotography

The smallest hill can create the biggest memories . . . When @rosemarie1989 and I first met we talked about the Wainwright fells, and how I found many of them boring, Binsey being top of the list... . My words were "It'll take something pretty special to get me up that lump" . So yesterday Rose made it special as we celebrated her 100th with a picnic on the summit 👌 . Binsey, I'll never look at you the same again ❤

Can I just live in the mountains please... . Barely 12 hours back in the rat race and I want to be back there.. . After 3 days of just mine and the dogs company, I'm beginning to think that is the life for me 😁 . No drama, no stress! Just carefree thoughts of where to walk and what to eat!!

This one is from Friday when I'd just finished a security on steep ground workshop in Langdale Valley. It was stifling hot but I decided on a hike up Pike of Blisco to finish the day off. I don't mind saying I was knackered on the way up. I really had to dig deep and roll up my trouser legs (see pic ). . At one point I stopped and was ready to admit defeat and retreat to the shade of the valley (the pub ) below, until a 5 year old boy ran past me with a 30L rucksack on his back on his way to wildcamp on the summit! I thought I was hallucinating due to heat exhaustion until I saw his parents appear too! . We can learn a lot from a child's energy and enthusiasm....he wasn't a bad photographer either 👌 📸 Toby 😉

Since asking if Herdy Thursday was still a thing last week (Thursday ), I've been swamped with requests from herdies wanting to be featured. On Saturday I went and met this weeks feature, Gregory, who resides in Grisedale Valley. A quite cautious chap he soon warmed to me when I assured him I wasn't Welsh. I devised a simple communication system to answer questions. One chew on the grass for yes, and two chews for no. I asked Gregory if he understood this? He chewed once... Gregory began to ask me questions as I chewed on the grass...No wait, I asked the questions and he chewed on the grass! . I asked Gregory if it was wise of me to write this caption after a nightshift and being deprived of sleep as it would probably make no sense? He chewed twice and also shook his head. . I regretted not using this method of nod/shake for the yes/no questions, although he really was enjoying that grass, so.... . I thanked Gregory for his time and we went our separate ways... . Next Thursday I'll be chewing the grass with Lenny from the Langdales...Unless he can nod too? Ok Goodnight 😴

Hello again Monday!! It soon comes around doesn't it!! What a weekend it was though. From exploring Ingleton waterfalls on Friday, to a wildcamp with Rocky Roo on Saturday, then an impromptu trip to Loughrigg Fell and Rydal caves on Sunday. Arrived home at 6pm last night and was in work for 10pm!! 😴 So worth it though. Peak District next weekend for more Nav training 👍 #liveforthenow

"Lost in a world that doesn't exist" . Although this does exist so I'm not quite sure where I was going with that one?! 🤔 . Anyways, This is Thornton Force on the Ingleton waterfalls walk. . It has a Jurassic feel to it on parts of this route, and at £7 a head to get in, I'd have liked to have seen a brontasaurus or two 🦕 . Still a nice day out, a great one for kids too with lots of flora and fauna to see....but no dinosaurs 👍

Hey you guys... . I'm back after a little break whilst I've been studying for my Mountain Leader assessment. Got lots done over the last week! Micro navigation near Haweswater on Saturday and lots of bedtime reading on flora and fauna, nature and the environment 😊 . I was going to take a longer break but then it struck me that quite a few people I follow are also going through this journey that i am on. So why not share experiences and knowledge? . I will be creating a highlights tab on my stories that will have all of my ML stuff to date in. I will also be doing fun quizzes and polls. Feel free to get involved even if you're not in training. . I can give you tips if youre just starting out, or you can give me tips on assessment advice. . Hope to hear from you all soon.... PS...I've missed you all ❤

Throwback Thursday to heading up for a wildcamp on the Howgill Fells. The weather people said it would rain that night.....and boy were they right 😬 . This was also the camp that I took my son's size 13 waterproof trousers on 🙄 . Everyday is a school day as the say! I now check the weather before each hike, and that I'm not taking children's clothes with me 😏 . . . #GetOutside #ordnancesurvey #osmapping #adventureawaitsall #ukhikers #learnleadinspire #thegreatoutdoors #lakedistrict #lakedistrictnationalpark #lakescollective #igerslakedistrict #igerscumbria #raw_hikes #uk_hiking #thelakelanders #fromlakelandwithlove #loveslakeswalks #capturingbritain #thisismyadventure #visualofbritain #theplacetobe #ukpotd #visitbritain #ig_united_kingdom #photosofengland #wanderlust #canonphotography

I wasn't going to post tonight but I've had so many messages over on my story! . I've been guilty in the past of watching my followers grow, even though I knew a lot of them were spam accounts (bots ) . Believing it would make me look popular and an Insta success I watched as it grew and grew... . However, it gets to the point when it begins to work the other way, and you find you have lots of followers but very little engagement! . I've deleted a thousand fake accounts today, and I'll delete a thousand more tomorrow. . Don't get sucked into the followers game! Engage with the accounts that you really like and make them feel appreciated and they will yours too. . It is surely more personal and satisfying to have 80 likes/comments from a 100 followers than it is to have 500 from 10,000+ . Let's make Insta enjoyable again 😊
